A traffic police officer is nursing injuries after being assaulted by an unknown public member, as he was busy at work in the city on Saturday.
The cop, who was controlling evening traffic at Kariokor roundabout, Nairobi Central Business District, was punched on the face by a man who immediately took off after the incident, leaving the officer with a deep cut above his left eye.
“A concerned motorist rushed the officer to a nearby hospital, where he received treatment and was discharged in fair condition,” reiterated DCI.
Traffic gridlock was experienced on the busy road following the unfortunate 7 pm incident.
Members of the public are encouraged to be civil and are cautioned against assaulting a police officer, which is a serious offence that could land one in conflict with the law.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
